The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - SPORTS - Staff Re­port

PUR­CEL­LVILLE, VA. » Af­ter be­gin­ning the Amer­i­can Le­gion Mid-Atlantic Re­gional with two con­sec­u­tive wins, Broad Street Park was un­able to come up with late-in­ning magic Fri­day night.

Post 313 dropped a tight 2-1 game against Wilm­ing­ton Post 1 (Del.), which means the Hamil­ton­based team is on the brink of elim­i­na­tion Satur­day.

BSP will take on Lees­burg Post 34 (Va.) in the losers’ bracket at 1 p.m. Only four teams re­main in the field.

Adam Drosos pitched all six in­nings for BSP, strik­ing out three while walk­ing two and al­low­ing eight hits.

But Wilm­ing­ton’s JT To­movich won the duel by al­low­ing only one run on three hits and nearly go­ing the dis­tance. Jac­ques Dubecq recorded the fi­nal out af­ter Ma­son Fitz­patrick was hit by a pitch.

Shane Hoff­man en­tered as a pinchrun­ner and stole sec­ond base to move the ty­ing run into scor­ing po­si­tion for BSP, but the rally came up short.

Af­ter four score­less in­nings, Wilm­ing­ton struck first in the bot­tom of the fifth. Jon Golebiowski drove in Mar­shall Awtry with a one-out dou­ble, but Drosos recorded a strike­out and ground­out to es­cape fur­ther dam­age.

BSP tied the game in the top of the sixth when Dar­ius Land belted a solo home run. But Wilm­ing­ton pro­duced a long ball of its own in the bot­tom half as Dubecq launched a solo shot to re­gain the lead for the Delaware team.

Fitz­patrick and Sean Ele­fant both recorded sin­gles for BSP.

Wilm­ing­ton, the only un­de­feated team left, will take on Soud­er­ton Post 234 (Pa.) Satur­day at 4:30 p.m.
